Craig Sports Briefs for June 25, 2014: Women-only Cast Blast and Twang this weekend from CPW
Colorado Parks and Wildlife will host a Cast Blast and Twang to teach fishing and shooting protocol Saturday in Granby.
CPW hosts similar events across the state each year, but the upcoming one in Granby is for women only, “to keep up with the growing number of women wishing to hunt and fish,” according to a news release.
It will offer lessons on the basics of fly-fishing, archery and safe use of shotguns. No experience or equipment in hunting or fishing is required, but a fishing license is needed.
For more information, call the CPW office in Hot Sulphur Springs at 970-725-6200.
